Deathliger, Lion of Chaos

If you could call a black creature "Vanilla," this is it. Deathliger is almost that. His chocolate syrup is that he's a double breaker. Of course, he's decently costed as a 9000 for 7, but add the double breaker bonus, and he becomes much better. He plays a tad late at 7, but he's pretty big, so if you've had a well built lead in to him from your deck, you should be sitting well.

In limited, anything large and double breaker makes the cut. Even if it's not in your colors and you open him late, you can splash for him.

Constructed: 4
Limited: 4.5
Gordon Kane Deathliger, Lion of Chaos:

I'm sure that if I was a casual card-playing kid, a
9000 point creature for 7 mana would be cool. But as
a competitive card-playing adult -- this card just
doesn't make the cut for my Constructed decks. Sure,
it is a Double Breaker - but it has a huge bullseye
that just screams "Smoke me, Pit me!". At 7 mana, the
creature better have some sort of "comes into play"
effect, or it gets left in the binder.
However, when playing the GBA game, Sempai Legends -
Deathliger did make it into my early decks.
In a Booster Draft or Sealed Limited, where the game
play is a bit slower, Deathliger might see play.
However, it is a card that I wouldn't bother just
playing one of, three of, or four of -- and I can
barely justify playing two in a Constructed deck.
Sure, Deathliger will kill just about any card of your opponent's that is tapped, but shields don't care how big or how small the attacking creature is. Deathliger is great eye candy, and they do look nice in my collection - but unless you collect 4 of every card like I do, you'd probably be better off trading the Deathliger for some better cards.

Constructed: 1/5
Limited: 1/5
